The Sevierville Police Department (SPD) investigates many car break-ins and purse thefts each year. Often these crimes of opportunity could have been prevented by sound security practices. Besides the loss of personal property, victims may also have to contend with costly damages to their vehicle. In some rare instances, purse snatchings and vehicle break-ins have also led to home burglaries.
During the holidays, the number of purse thefts and vehicle break-ins normally increase. Owners sometimes leave vehicles unlocked while shopping or parked at home, providing easy targets for thieves. The following information has been compiled by the SPD to help reduce your risk.
